    I thought he was part of the 1T rotation with Urban and Bohanna.

    I can't see how he plays elsewhere in this scheme.

    He definitely isn't a LEO....but he sure doesn't look like a 5 either.

    Is he DLaws backup? Guess so. Seems off to me but I can't say for sure either way.

    man, I feel for you...a cowboys fan in Philly. the philly fans suck. I lived in DC (I was CowboysFanDC) before moving to Houston. DC wasn't as bad. there was rivalry, but some respect as well....

    that was part of the problem. I think Nolan's defense on paper is good, but way too complicated given all 11 players had to be perfect in carrying out their responsibilities. when that happened, they were good. however, chances are that it didn't and thus we tended to give up a lot of big plays.

    I remember watching Watkins play in college and thinking he was going to be good. Hopefully, he is and it is with the Cowboys.

    I can not wait to see all these new defenders in action. Watkins winning a day at camp now is ok but what matters is what he can do in a game.

    I can settle for that and being right.

    Have fun in fantasy land where Watkins is an impact player until next year's FA stiff comes along to make you feel better.

    Really do not care what you do. You want to be a jerk, I'm accustom to seeing that from you. You can express your views without the rest of your crap.

    Am I supposed to pretend Watkins is an impact player to make you feel better? He might not even make the roster.

    No, there are others who felt the same way and left off the stupid comment "And I think you'd have been excited if they fattened up Jerry Jones Jr. and put him out there."
    Others who doubt Watkins I respect their views even if it is different than mine

    You are clearly entitled to give any view you wish but you can do it without the BS attack.

    I hope we have upgraded the de position.
    Our defense needs serious help.

    My understanding is that he's a decent pass defender, but not a real good run defender. He played 3-4 end and 4-3 tackle for Houston, so considering that Quinn wants to use some 3-4 concepts, I now think that's why we brought him in. I thought we brought him in as a 4-3 3-tech option since he's slight upgrade to what we've gotten from our interior pass rushers (Gallimore and Hill) so far. Good insurance if neither is able to take it to the next level. We may be looking him as more of a 3-4 end in the base, which I don't think is his best fit.

    We wanted to improve our run defense by bringing in Urban, drafting Odighizuwa and Bohanna, etc. If we brought in Watkins for that same purpose, I don't really understand the move. I only understand it if he's competing for interior pass rusher playing time.

    It is what this team does.

    I don't mind the Watkins' signing in light of the fact that the Joneses are not going to spend much in FA. I don't expect much to come from it, but maybe he'll be able to play a role, much like when we signed Terrell McClain from the Texans a few years ago. He's not the answer for the glaring hole, but we seem to try to fix the DT spots by committee instead of ensuring that we get a dominant player who is able to both pass rush and run defend.

    He's far from a 1-tech. He's another quickness player who doesn't win if it comes down to power on power.

    We need some DTs with Leon Lett’s height and size. These short DTs have become the trend in Dallas , but I always liked tall defensive linemen.

    He’s got to b
    1. Odigizuwa
    2. Urban
    3. Gallimore
    4. Hill
    5. Bohanna
    6. Watkins

    1. Lawrence
    2. Gregory
    3. Golston
    4. Basham
    5. Armstrong
    6. Anae

    How many D-line players do we carry..9...10? Considering the guaranteed money (or lack of) compared to Urban and Basham, Watkins is right on the fringe of being cut IMO.
